Everybody loves a great value and energy efficient and insulated windows are the epitome of a great value because they don't just save you money now by lowering your bills, they put more money in your pocket down the road as well by increasing the value of your properties.
How do these energy efficient windows do this? A few ways! First off, let's talk about the Energy Star label. If you don't know what we are talking about, you probably actually do! The energy star label is on all kinds of items including appliances. It simply means that the item with the label passes certain tests. Those that pass these tests might receive either the R-Value or the U-Value.
The R-Value specifically refers to how the glass handles energy or heat loss relative to the difference in outdoor/indoor temps.
On the other hand, the U-Value measures heat increase or decrease compared to the difference between the outside and inside temperatures.
Low E Glass stands for Low Thermal Emissivity Glass. This has to do with glass that radiates small amounts of radiating thermal energy. One of the reasons people appreciate Low E glass is because it protects furnishings from UV rays. Glass Doctor® of Columbus only uses the best glass in our replacement glass projects.
